Győr

Győr is the town of 3 rivers:  the Danube, Rába, and Rábca. The oldest part is criss-crossed with quiet cobbled streets and tight alleyways and on top, sits the Basilica, with foundations dating back to the 11th century - the first Hungarian king, Stephen established the Episcopate 1000 years ago! The Weeping Icon of Mary, brought from Galway by an Irish Bishop, began to cry tears of blood on St Patrick’s Day, and is still a pilgrimage site today. Beautiful baroque buildings of Győr are winners of the European Award for monument protection. Győr ballet /modern dance company is famous for its new choreographies and great young talents.
